John Eaves, over the past several decades, has had a major impact on the look of the Star Trek universe and played a pivotal role in shaping Gene Roddenberry’s vision. Eaves has worked as a production designer, illustrator and modelmaker across the franchise, from Star Trek V: The Final Frontier to Star Trek: Discovery, and he has been responsible for creating many of the props and ships, and helping develop the Federation design, from the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-E to the U.S.S. Discovery NCC-1031. And soon he will get his due, as, this fall, Titan Books will publish Star Trek: The Art of John Eaves

Featuring fascinating pencil sketches and stunning concept art, this visually dynamic book will give fans a unique in-depth look into Eaves’ creative vision and the wealth of his remarkable work at the center of the venerable franchise.
